John Carradine is an insane Nazi scientist and Veda Ann Borg is his zombie wife in an old house cluttered with the walking dead. Happily Mantan Moreland is on hand to make nonsense of all this. Actually it's a disguised remake of "King of the Zombies," which also features Mantan, and also is here at IA in the Feature Films Collection.
Directed by Steve Sekely.
Released in 1943.
a.k.a. "The Corpse Vanished" (UK).

A Re-Make? I Don't Think So
Before watching this film, I went to "King Of The Zombies" and watched that too, just to get a feel for what was coming in this film, and while a few elements are similar and screen-writer in both is listed as Edmond Kelso, and both were produced by the same Monogram line producer Lindsley Parsons, they are far different pictures. Neither very good, but well done for what they are. This has Mantan Moreland in a very toned down and smaller roll than in the first picture. This is a horror picture and tries to be in the same vein as many being produced at Universal Pictures at the time but on a smaller budget. The top cast players; John Carradine, Rob. Lowery, Bob Steele and new comer Gale storm are fine and Veda Ann Borg is even better with few lines but plenty of hokum to work with. I liked it. You might too. Enjoy.
